THE FISHING this week at Forbes of Kingennie has been on great form after all the heavy rain and flooding the ponds have dropped and cleared well and the fish are really responding with the boathouse and bankside fishing extremely well.

Deals on the Bankside are still available throughout august with four hours c&r for £5, eight hours c&r for £8, four hours two fish £10 and eight hours four fish £15.

The Boathouse has cleared nicely and lots of fish have been coming out to lures such as the hotty damsel and Montana. The best fish this week was an 8lbs 14ozs rainbow caught by Liam Kirk in a yellow dancer. The best bag went to Gordon Smith with four rainbows for 24lbs all caught on buzzers.

The Burnside has taken slightly longer to clear but has started to come good with lots of fish being caught on small dries and buzzers. The Bankside has been on fantastic form with lots coming out to small lures, but dries have been the top method by far. Small shuttlecocks and sedgehogs have been the favourite.
